The 4min 42sec disc one closer tells the story of an encounter the rapper, who was also known as Biggie Smalls, had with an unnamed player f-rom the New York Knicks.
As Biggie tells it, he was having sex with the basketball star’s girl — in the player’s bed — while he was playing a game against the Utah Jazz. But things got interesting when the player returned home and was about to catch the duo in the act.
In true gangster style, Biggie tied the girl up to make it seem like a burglary, put a scarf around his face and when the basketball player came into the room holding a drink he pulled out his gun.
“Flash the heat on em, he stood emotionless, d-ropped the glass screamin, ‘Don’t blast here’s the stash, a hundred cash just don’t shoot my ass, please!” the song goes.
Biggie filled a Prada bag with the cash and walked out.
Whether the story was true — and if it was, who was the Knicks player in question — has dogged basketball and music fans alike since the album was released almost 20 years ago.
Fans have forensically broken down the lyrics to form a timeline of the incident and attempted to narrow down which Knicks players it could be.
